Leslie Brown

Poetry By: PaulChafer

A poem about duplicity, deception, insincerity, on the internet: I'm sure many out there have often wondered with whom they are actually communicating.

Has anyone seen Leslie Brown?

She went missing earlier today.

A stranger in

A strange town,

Who probably just lost her way.

I've quizzed, enquired and questioned,

Almost everyone I know.

To be greeted by

A shaking of heads,

Puzzled expressions that say, 'sorry, but no'.

Has anyone seen Leslie Brown?

I was meeting her at three.

She's an Internet friend

Paying a visit,

I just can't think where she might be.

In despair I checked with the police.

"Leslie Brown! Why yes: come when you can."

When I arrived my

Cyber-space sweetheart,

Is not a lady, but a cross-dressed, transsexual man!
